Some of you may know I have started taking tentative steps into using Vassal to play Warmachine. During one such game with @Jasksta we stumbled upon an idea, an idea that was just so crazy it could actually work!
The idea is a simple one, players come together to play Warmachine/Hordes games on Vassal as has been the way since the module was designed. But here is the interesting concept, we play a Journeyman league so Battlebox up to 35 pts.
The idea being it allows people to get experience with Vassal and as such expand the player base on there. But what happens if you are fluent on Vassal and a Hardcore champion for your faction? well ever fancied trying another faction? don’t have the cash to get one then this could also work wonders for you 😀
As this is something completed new to myself & Jasksta we want to start small so we will only have room for 16 entries. This is so it will in the start easier to track everything especially since people could be on different continents.
So how will all this occur well once you have expressed interest in this blog post in the comments OR contacted myself or Jasksta on Twitter OR emailed me at email@example.com. We can see if we have the numbers.
We will make sure everyone has Vassal and the Warmachine module as well as Skype (as you need to insult people in real-time 😉 ) and so we can begin.
There will be separate pages on the respective blogs about all the info including results and we can do blog posts if you are painting as you go. There will also be a Yahoo Group so people can organise matches and post results.
Well it is too early to say but there is nothing stopping us running tournaments or other PP leagues on Vassal. So who knows its community driven we are just trying to steer things.
It could be the start of a beautiful axe-to-mouth so come on jump on-board.
But I must stress we are unsure who well it work and what sort of time-frame we could run it in so at the moment it is very much a lets see numbers and take the discussion with interested parties from there.
